On this day in football history

1931 Albert Gray, Welsh international goalkeeper returned to League football by signing to Tranmere Rovers after two seasons with Manchester Central. Joined Oldham Athletic from Ebbw Vale in 1924 and moved to Manchester City in 1926 winning a Second Division medal with them two years later. Left the Football League for the Lancashire Combination in 1929 and continued to be selected for Wales whilst in non-League football. After his return with Tranmere he had a further seven seasons in first class soccer, the last two with Chester. His full record 1924-38, was 409 League matches and 24 internationals for Wales. Standing 6'3", he was one of the tallest goalkeepers to appear in the International Championship.
1948 Stan Cullis appointed manager of Wolverhampton Wanderers. He joined the club as a player in 1934 and captained the team to second position in the League in 1939 and 1947 and to the Cup Final at Wembley in 1939 which was lost 4-1 to Portsmouth. Became assistant manager in 1947 and his full appointment came on the retirement of Ted Vizard, the old Boston and Wales winger. Under Cullis, Wolves won the League three times, 1954,58 & 59, and the FA Cup twice, 1949 and 1960. It was a great surprise when he was sacked in September 1964.
